Amazon has just presented the long-awaited redesign it has prepared for its Kindle app, featuring a brand new light theme, a slightly different appearance, and better interaction and connectivity between the app and Goodreads, the social platform for avid readers. The old logo is now gone in favor of a new one, so the app will feel like a whole new experience.
The new Kindle app is a whole new graphic experience
Therefore, the first change in the Kindle mobile app is the light theme, which users will definitely enjoy more. Now, they will be able to decide if they want black or white borders which surround their home menu and their library. In fact, the entire appearance of the app is now prettier.
For instance, book titles appear now more sophisticated, as they lay written in the custom font for Amazon, Bookerly. Also, book covers are a lot more emphasized. As mentioned above, the classic Kindle logo is now replaced by the typical Tree Kid signature we already know, so everything now has a more minimalist look.
Goodreads is now better integrated in the app
However, the changes are not only graphic. A new feature lets you control the app through only one tap. For instance, such a tap will minimize the book you’re reading and send it into a small rectangle at the bottom of the app. This way, whenever you want to return to it, you can do it immediately. Also, the search field is easier to use and to see.
Amazon acquired Goodreads in 2013, and tried to integrate it in the Kindle app for some time. Now, the entire platform is carefully connected to the reader social media, as you can access your own Goodreads profile or the profile of your friends immediately. This way, you can discover books more easily, and start conversations with your friends according to your common interests.
